ASH Hosts String Festival

Posted: Updated:


ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5)--Alexandria Senior High School played host to the Rapides Parish String Festival.

Student string musicians came together for an opportunity to work with nationally-known string educators from across the country. Students got to take part in master classes and workshops - and were also given a concert by the instructors. 

"The reason why you do this is so that students then can know what it is they can strive for, what they can become, what the sounds should be.  And we are right in the middle of preparing for our next main event which will be participating in a national orchestra competition in May 2015," Festival Director John De Chiaro.

That competition will be held on board a cruise to \Mexico and will feature the Alexandria Youth Orchestra and the Alexandria Junior Philharmonic.
